Can-Am is warning owners of one of its motorcycles not to ride them due to a defect that is subject of an ongoing recall.
Over 9,000 2022 model year Can-Am Rykers were shipped with a defective stem bolt for the handlebar assembly that could break and lead to a loss of control.
According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 56 of the bolts were broken during preparation by dealers and at least two while riding, with one event resulting in an accident and sprained ankle.
The problem is due to an issue with the manufacturing process that led to the stems not having a "sufficient thread length for a proper assembly." The handlebars are installed by the dealers as part of the pre-delivery process.
